Michael Jackson UPDATES

Here's a couple of pics of Michael Jackson practicing for his "This Is It" tour with his dancers and crew last month:

His dancers say it was incredible to see him doing the moves again that he originated.

Michael Jackson's mother and father, Katherine and Joseph Jackson, were seen leaving the Holmby Hills mansion where their son Michael died on Thursday. They spent around 6 hours inside with daughters Latoya and Janet and other family friends. Katherine is seen sitting in the front seat of the car looking very somber while Joseph is in the back seat wearing a black hat and sunglasses as they were driven back to their home in Encino, Ca.

Yesterday, the family--including Rebbie and Randy pictured above--was also seen arriving to Michael's home in Bel Air with moving trucks.  Apparently Joe Jackson had ordered everything in the home to be moved to storage. Joe Jackson has taken the reigns of the family again as they have all come together to get through this extrememly tragic time.  Joe has been very vocal about not trusting Dr. Murray--who was there with Michael when he died--and that he shouldn't be cleared of all wrongdoing as of yet.  Joe has said that the family is not liking how everything is happening and they are being kept in the dark about many things.  Also, Randy Jackson has reportedly been named to take control over Michael's estate.  Here is the official statement issued by the family:
"In one of the darkest moments of our lives we find it hard to find the words appropriate to this sudden tragedy we all had to encounter. Our beloved son, brother and father of three children has gone so unexpectedly, in such a tragic way and much too soon. It leaves us, his family, speechless and devastated to a point, where communication with the outside world seems almost impossible at times. "We miss Michael endlessly, our pain cannot be described in words. But Michael would not want us to give up now. So we want to thank all of his faithful supporters and loyal fans worldwide, you - who Michael loved so much. Please do not despair, because Michael will continue to live on in each and every one of you. Continue to spread his message, because that is what he would want you to do. Carry on, so his legacy will live forever. "In addition, Joseph Jackson wishes to personally convey: 'My grandchildren are deeply moved by all the love and support you have shown for them and their father, Michael Jackson.'"
President Obama wrote a personal letter to the Jackson family expressing his condolences. He decided not to put out a public statement about the matter as he said a personal letter was more appropriate.

And several never-before-seen pictures of Michael Jackson and his kids in their home have surfaced.  They show a genuinely happy Michael as he spent time with his kids and staffers at birthday parties, costume parties, and just at home:

There will never be another

There will never be another Michael. he was truly touched by GOD to do all that he did. Only a spirit could move people so deeply from one continent to another. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but please remember that a mother has lost her son, siblings a brother, and children their father. FOX news and other outlets are doing a great job of only focusing on negative tabloid fodder. Don't get suckered in. Let us all show our support to his family in their darkest hour by making our voices heard. Let some of these broadcasters know it's not ok to crucify him in this manner. It's hurtful to all that loved him and just unnecessary. RIP Michael

I like so many of us will

I like so many of us will truly miss Michael and the impact he had on all of our lives. I really hope that those kids carry his DNA because I would love to think that some part of him is still with us. However looking at the kids I don't think they're his genetically. He may have loved them as his own, but it really makes me wonder, why he would choose to not father his own kids. Did the thought of them looking like he did as a kid bother him so much even though they would obviously be lighter being biracial. I don't know...I can understand the surgery he had although he went too far but the logic behind it is the hatred that he had for his father, and the thought of him growing older and one day looking in the mirror and seeing his father looking back at him probably scared the crap out of him.

Im Just Sayin......: Not a

Im Just Sayin......: Not a black person in sight. MJ did not like his own race. What ashame. That is what struck me as well. He bought and paid for those kids....none if his dna is in nah one of them. OJ, Michael........love that you all have white friends, but ahm.......it seems you want us around when ya need support. If that is not the case, shame on me, but ah.....shame on people for accepting Michael had a skin condition, ya mean racism instilled a hate for his race and features and any teasing from family or otherwise didn't help, plus devil instilling false desires, then low self esteem and too much money to buy into the alterations offered by surgeons. Shame on his mom and dad for allowing such a lie that those are blood grand children...shame on the biological moms for selling their damn babies. Still love your talent Michael, sad you weren't grounded enough to stay true to yourself. Sorry you found no true companionship on this earth (love/intimacy) sorry you may have had "deviant" inclinations, sorry you had no childhood and continued to try to make up for that in your adult life. Despite being so stunted, you God-given talent blazed and you were truly a part of humanity. We miss ya! Your tortured soul is now returning to your maker!

BET is a sore excuse for

BET is a sore excuse for black entertainment television. When you are singing a song with I want to Fu@* all the girls in the world and have 8, 9 and 10 year olds dancing to it you know you have reached a new low. BET has no backbone in regards to Letoya Luckett and Chris Brown they banned both of these artist for the sake of two people. I thought it was a tribute To Michael Jackson not Jayz and Beyonce. I beleive Chris Brown would ave represented well. It is time Bet give it a wrap because they are truely dead and gone.

J-roc: the real dad of

J-roc: the real dad of these kids will soon come out, because these kids are NOT MIXED….WITH BLACK ANYWAY. ESPECIALLY NOT JACKSON BLACK! EVERYBODY NEEDS TO REMEMBER, MICHAEL MADE HIS SELF LOOK THE WAY HE DOES. IF HE WOULD OF LEFT HIMSELF ALONE, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN A CHUNKY BLACK MAN, WITH A BIG NOSE! THE JACKSONS HAVE REAL AFRICAN AMERICAN FEATURES AND THEY CANNOT BE IGNORED JUST BECAUSE THEY ALL DECIDED TO LOOK LIKE SKELATOR (FROM MASTER’S OF THE UNIVERSE, LOL)AND CHOP HALF OF THEIR NOSES OFF. THOSE KIDS MAYBE MIXED, BUT NOT WITH AFRICAN AMERICAN! SORRY, NOT BELIEVING IT! ONE OF EM IS BLOND! I AM SO SADDENED BY MIKE’S PASSING, I LIKE TO PICTURE HIM AS LITTLE MICHAEL, NOT WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS PERFECTION BEING A WHITE, EUROPEAN FACE. IF YOU CAN RECALL MICHAEL JACKSON DID NOT CHANGE HIS SKIN TONE MY CHOICE. HE CLEARLY STATED IN OPRAH'S INTERVIEW THAT HE HAS A SKIN DISEASE (VITLIGO). MICHAEL JACKSON WAS ALSO ABUSED BY HIS FATHER VERBALLY AND EMOTIONALLY, HE WAS REPEATEDLY CALLED BIG NOSE AND UGLY. NOW KNOWING WHAT IMPACT THAT CAN HAVE ON A PERSON ESPECIALLY A SENSITIVE SOUL LIKE MJ IN THE PUBLIC EYE WILL CERTAINLY HAVE AN AFFECT PERIOD! WHETHER THE CHILDREN ARE GENETICALLY HIS OR NOT REALLY DOESNT MATTER. LETS JUST REMEMBER HIM FOR WHAT TRULY MADE HIM WHO HE IS THE MUSIC AND THE UNCONDITIONAL CONTRIBUTION HE DID IN HIS CHARITY WORK ALL OVER THE WORLD! I LOVE U AND THE WORLD LOVES U MICHAEL JACKSON MAY U FIND PEACE ON THE DIVINE SIDE OF THE WORLD XXXXX

CosmopolitanChic: Debbie

CosmopolitanChic: Debbie Rowe already admitted that Michael was not the sperm donor.I loved Mike as much as the next person, and he will be missed–there is no doubt about that. But, Mike had serious mental issues. I just wished he would have gotten help instead of trying to numb the pain with prescription drugs. Also he needed good ppl around.

You will always be one of my

You will always be one of my favorite idol/singer.I know many people failed you,including those close to you.I have never cried for any celeberity before but I couldn't stop crying for you.You died a lonely,depressed and broken soul.I hope you are an happier place now.You had an innocent,beautiful heart that wasn't not made out for this evil world.You were a prey amongst hungry sharks.You were taken for granted but you will never forgotten now.It's sad you didn't get to see how so many of us love you and appreciated your talent.I hope your haters eat their hearts out now,because they can't take this away from you now.Those who contributed to your death should suffer more than you.You were giving to us as a gift but we didn't show you enough appreciation but the angels came to get you. Your fan always. R.I.P KING M.J

Its great to see Michael with HIS CHILDREN. Great pics. I also love the pic of him with the red shirt with the pic of him. There is a story circulating that DEBBIE has spoken about how they were conceived and who the father is, but.. I think if it is true, she is wrong on so many levels to bring that up. What an uncaring woman. Thank God she does not want the children because they would probably be miserable with her anyway. Yuk REST IN PEACE MICHAEL!!! WE LOVE YOU ALWAYS and will never stop loving you and will never ever forget you.

Some people don't wanna believe that their own mother,farther uncle, etc can molest their own kids.

Wow, I like these pictures.

Wow, I like these pictures. People often forget this side of Michael and we as the public never got an inside look of him as a father. He looked like he was a wonderful father and it looks like his kids adore and love him dearly. Biological father or not, those kids are his. There is more to being a parent then donating sperm and egg. Again, love the pictures whatever the children are mixed with they have some nice genes because Paris' eyes are gorgeous. good for President Obama for writing a private letter, because the media would have had a field day with that one by trying to bring both him and Michael down with negativity and such. And I' am glad that Randy is over the estate.

I still feel so sad Thank you nat for these posts you are doing a really good job. Please post the BET performances because in u.k we won't be able to see them! We can view BET here but its crap and not showing the show tonight perhaps because of time differences or something

May I remind everyone about Garcelle Bouvier-Nalon(the woman from the Jamie Foxx Show) has very caucasian twins, also Victoria Rowell has a blond hair blue eyed daughter. So it is very possible that these are his biological children. Anyway, who cares, he's all they know and I hope they stay with the family!

kspeezy: I love Mike, I really do - but it is impossible for ALL THREE kids to come out looking that white. Clearly - they are not his, biologically. I’m sure he love them - but let’s keep it real. I will say - though - the no shirt is not a good look. when its hot children sometimes dont want to put shirts on. there are other friends around on the pictures, or maybe the kids were waiting for their costume or other shirt to wear. why dont you leave michael alone. he doesn´t deserved to be questioned after his death. why do some people always trying to find something negative. the guy was having fun with his kids and friends. its the first happy family pictures, gosh just leave him alone. please give him more respect. AND BY THE WAY, MICHAEL IS NUMBER ONE IN THE ALBUM CHARTS IN THE UK. IN JUST 2 DAYS. ALOTS OF ALBUMS AND SINGLES OR IN THE CHARTS. MORE THEN 300.000 ALBUMS AND SINGLES SOLD IN TWO DAYS. WOW.

awwwww, he was gettin ready to smash that tour! i love the pic where he rockin himself on the t-shirt! ugh, i am soooo sad over this. It's gonna take me a while to get over this situation. i feel so bad for those children. they lost a great father that truly loved them (which is so hard to find). it doesn't matter who the "real" father of the children are. he was the one taking care of them since birth. so technically, he's the pappy! r.i.p. mikey! where you are is a far better place than here.

I'm glad to see that the

I'm glad to see that the family is coming together. The only thing I'm concerned about besides the kids is that as the posts states Randy is supposedly going to administer Jacksons estate. I've heard his name mixed into too much drama for him to seem fit for this. Didn't his business associates sue MJ a couple years ago?

I Loooove the pic of him rockin a pic w/his face on it! LOL. And to any of those who think those kids aren't MJ's, I think his sons look like him, esp Prince Michael I. They have some features that just stand out to me, even though it may not be obvious ones. And it is possible for them to be light in skintone and have Black roots. Genetics is a helluva thing..

To J-Roc Michael did not

To J-Roc Michael did not choose to be white, he had vitiligo which would have slowly changed his skin color. Instead of being seen with dark and light spots all over his body, he took it up himself to bleach his skin so he wouldn't have to go through all that. You must not have been a true fan because you would have known that! These pictures are beautiful. I wish the negative comments would stop. You can see he loved those kids more than anything. He is their father. Blood does not determine a father because there are plenty of men out there that do not take care of the children they do have. I pray for his family and children RIP MJ

Those pictures of him with

Those pictures of him with his kids are kinda sad...because you realize these kids have no parents now. They look very attached to him as children should be to thier parents so I know this is hard for them. As for whether they are his biologically or not..does it even really matter. At the end of the day he is the only father they know so therefore he is thier dad. I mean let's be honest..considering all the unnecessary drama surrounding his life what judge would would allow him to adopt...EXACTLY..so he could have avoided that and commissioned a surrogate ...guess what rich people do it all the time. Speaking as someone who lost thier father at a young age I know it's gonna be hard for them but Im sure they will be ok. Because that picture of little Paris crying on her grandmothers chest just broke my heart...at the end of the day that family will make sure they are well loved and looked after.

I'm sure they're missing him now and in the days to come. They're going to really need alot of love and support. This also prove false alot of the crap people saying about Michael kids being unhappy and reclusive. These pics show how vibrant and happy they were with their father.

Michael Jackson,... an icon

Michael Jackson,... an icon and a legacy: I agree with Barack Obama…. a letter should be personal… Michael’s songs are on heavy repeat on my …. RIP michael I think that Obama chose to write a letter because the media and policians will scutinize every word due to the child molestation charges. Some people are having mixed emotions over Michael due to the charges and openly admitted to allowing children to sleep in his room. I am having all type of emotions over Michael dying. I was a true fan back in the seventies and eigties. I still love to listen to his old music. I hope he is at peace now because I always felt sorry for him. Michael always looked soo sad in the eyes and all the identity issues was ashame. I know he has paved ways for everyone in the music industry but it is a shame that he had to give up his sanity and life to be amongst the greatest of all time. RIP Michael I know you sacrificed soo much your whole life to be a genius. God Bless the family. We are truly blessed to have had been a witness to your greatness especially in the seventies and eighties. Thank You, your life was truly not in vein. God bless those children. We all will carry a piece of you. Thank You.
